Chinese New Year Concert and Imperial Dinner

Music, family and tradition: these three things are at the heart of the San Francisco Symphony’s Chinese New Year celebration. On Saturday, February 8, 2014 the Symphony will celebrate the “Year of the Horse” by hosting its annual Chinese New Year Concert. This family event includes a pre-concert Festival Reception which transforms the lobbies of Davies Symphony Hall into a Chinese festival with lion dancing, Chinese calligraphy, ribbon dancing, tea bars, children’s entertainment and “lucky” red envelopes.

Want to upgrade your experience? Purchase a ticket to the Imperial Dinner and continue the festivities after the concert in City Hall.

Dinner Package Info

Proceeds from the Chinese New Year Concert and Imperial Dinner go to the Symphony’s education and community programs that serve 75,000 Bay Area elementary, middle and high school students each year.
